As one ventures into the Biomechanics Research Laboratory of the Centinela Hospital Medical Center, it might appear as if time has been advanced. This isn't a motion-picture version of a laboratory with foul-smelling potions and curious test tubes. Yet, the sight of Dodger pitcher Orel Hershiser making a delivery with wires attached to his body would lead one to believe that truth is stranger than science fiction. The Biomechanics Research Laboratory is a think tank for sports medicine, and Centinela is a leader in the field.

The Senior PGA Tour, which has not held a tournament in Los Angeles since 1986, will conduct one at Rancho Park next year. Centinela Hospital Medical Center announced Wednesday that it will sponsor the $500,000, 54-hole tournament Oct. 28-Nov. 4, 1990. The last time the seniors played Los Angeles, the tournament was held at MountainGate Country Club in the spring of 1986. The tournament moved to Wood Ranch in Simi Valley the next year.

A Superior Court has granted Didi Hirsch Psychiatric Services the go-ahead to build a 14-bed psychiatric treatment facility in Inglewood across the street from Centinela Hospital Medical Center, which had attempted to block the facility. In a ruling last week Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Kurt J. Lewin criticized the hospital, saying it showed an irrational fear of the mentally ill by trying to move the residential facility out of its back yard.

Centinela Hospital Medical Center has agreed to continue treating emergency obstetric patients after May 26, although it will refuse to accept other patients brought in by paramedics after that date, hospital and county officials announced Wednesday. The agreement between the Inglewood hospital and the county supersedes Centinela's earlier decision to withdraw completely from the emergency care system and apparently lays to rest fears that it would create a domino effect, prompting other hospitals to follow suit.

Citing mounting losses incurred by treating patients unable to pay, Inglewood's Centinela Hospital Medical Center said Tuesday it will stop accepting patients from public ambulances April 26. The hospital said it has notified the county Department of Health Services of its intention to "downlicense" its emergency room to stand-by status, meaning it "will no longer be staffed to provide emergency services to patients transported by paramedic ambulances."

Centinela Hospital Medical Center filed a lawsuit Thursday aimed at preventing construction of a center for severely mentally ill patients across the street from the hospital. The hospital had threatened to file the suit after the Inglewood City Council last week approved construction of the 14-bed facility, to be operated by the Didi Hirsch Community Mental Health Center.

Centinela Hospital Medical Center has upgraded its emergency room in a move that county officials predict could improve emergency response in South Los Angeles. The Inglewood hospital stopped accepting most 911 ambulances four years ago when it "down-licensed" its emergency room to standby status. At the time, hospital leaders said the change was necessary to stop huge financial losses from treating indigent patients.

Centinela Hospital Medical Center said Wednesday that it will delay a plan to close its emergency room to patients brought in by paramedics until next month in an effort to reach an agreement to treat only obstetric cases that arrive by rescue ambulances. The Inglewood hospital's decision came after three public-interest law groups threatened to sue the hospital unless it delayed its decision. The hospital has state approval to stop taking public-ambulance patients as of April 26. The hospital has said it will continue to provide emergency services to patients who arrive on their own or by private ambulance.
